Kee probably did this to get JT slightly on the radar in terms of mid-end guns to(possibly)recommend.And,they are probably trying to get JT on the recommendation radar at all.

It was published on jt's instagram that this impulse will be using the balanced valve design, like the 09 impulse. Hopefully they will release a higher end one after, with no macro, an oled or something similar (luxe board) and some extra goodies

Looks nice, probably cocker threaded, and it looks like a great trigger. Plus an OLED. If it's priced in the $500's I think it'll be a winning design. JT/Kee will need to convince people that it's better to buy this than a Fusion X, Etek 4, or Invasion. Above $600 and I think it'll be in the pricing wasteland.

I wish the trigger was more angled away from the grip frame, but other than that it looks very solid. it's still a much better shape trigger than the stock Impulse/Luxe trigger.

As far as pricing, I don't see this being cheaper than $800. I just don't see it. The '09 Impulse was near $900 and that didn't even have an OLED board. Would I buy one? Not right now. If I had the cash? Just maybe. It depends on how it shoots, but it's possible it will shoot great.

So it does have an oled, which is nice. I still don't understand why they put macro on it, when the original design didn't have macroline, and because most other guns from KEE are also macroless. It'll probably shoot really nice, but it doesn't look as good as the 09 Impulse did.

i just don't understnad WHY you would mess with something that HAS been proven to work great.

oh whats that old saying... "if it aint broke, don't fix it!" The only way i can even fathom why they would change a great looking gun is for maintaince purposes so they user doesn't have to worry about the internal air lines.

The most likely reason is that it was cheaper and simpler to design with the macro, and it wasn't Empire's design so it wasn't consistent with his macroless markers like the mini, axe, and vanquish.

Yeah, that sounds about right. It also made it easier to put in an OLED by moving the regulators to a more conventional position instead of in the main grip. Macro would make it easier to work on. I also see what you mean with the macroless design differences; While the Kee guns and the SP Impulse are macroless, the similarities stop there.

I disagree. The 09 Impy trigger is by far my favorite trigger I've ever used, in shape, profile, and setup.

Plus I don't see how kee is going to market this and the vanquish. This is in direct competition with the egos and planet eclipse to everyones surprise is showing off a new ego now and I don't think by the looks of it the vanquish can compete with the cheaper geo. Plus the vanquish looks too much like a luxe and I'm not a fan of the luxe at all.

The 09 Impulse was sexier.

And cheaper (though admittedly, not much cheaper). Actually, I like the look of it, but I just really expected it to be a mid-range marker with the JT label. I've come to interpret JT as the Kee-brand equivalent of Proto. At the price they want to sell it for its going to compete against the Ego and G6R, and I will be curious to see how the Impulse competes against both of those. It's going to have to be clearly better to succeed.

Wait if its basically the 09 impulse with a macroline then why are they charging almost the same price that the SP impulse sold for back in 09?

They've got a traditional HPR on the front, so unless they managed to hide the LPR somewhere other than under the barrel, they've changed the design of the poppet. They say it's still balanced, so I'd like to see if they kept it 09 balanced, or went more like BL balanced.
